• China Won't See iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C Until Late November



    According to speculation emerging from the far east today, Chinese consumers may have to wait nearly two months longer than some U.S. and European consumers to gain access to Apple's anticipated iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.

    Apple's forthcoming iPhones are expected to be unveiled in early September.

    China's First Financial Daily reported today that current expectations, which are based on supposedly knowledgeable industry sources, call for both smartphones to debut in China around November 28th.

    Consistent with reasons for iPhone launch delays in years past, Chinese regulators have apparently not yet completed the rigorous verification process of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. There can be no market introduction of new mobile devices inside of China without the completion of this regulatory process.

    As MMi has previously reported, Apple is expected to introduce the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C at a media event on or around September 10th. The device is also expected to go on sale in Japan and elsewhere in the world by September 20th.

      Sure - this makes no sense at all...

      They build it there but can't get it for 2 months afterwards?!?!

      Some of the workers could make serious bank if they sold these out the backdoor of Foxconn! LOL!

      Rigorous verification process my eye! Lies! I assume this means all those KIRF iPhones sold in China went through the same rigorous process?

      As for workers selling the phones: this is Foxconn's bread n butter. I seriously doubt anyone would ask too many questions if a couple thievish workers went missing suddenly and permanently.

      this is the reason why nobody wants to make their phones in the US. I worked at technicolor where they previously sold x-box live cards. So many cards were stollen that the Memphis campuses almost closed. The culprits got caught but why do it when u can wait your turn and buy it.
